4. Sam Russell

DOB29th December 1995
Weight 81kg

Sam Russell was a constant, consistent performer for the Northern Blues VFL side in his maiden season at Preston City Oval. Missing just one game through injury, Russell locked down a defensive role and particularly performed with aplomb late in the year. Once again donning the #4 guernsey, the 21-year-old will be looking to produce more of the same in year two.

Former clubs: Geelong Falcons, Port Adelaide (AFL)
